Yeah older japanese cars work for that. Use mobile-1 oil.

If you leave it parked for extended periods, get a battery disconnect (easy to install on the battery terminal). Or a solar charger which sits on the dash or rear deck and plugs into a cig lighter socket. But you need to use a cig lighter socket which is hot when the key is off, otherwise it won't charge of course.

Another option is a timer which starts the car every week, lets it run for 30 minutes, then turns it off again. That will keep the battery charged and motor parts lubed. I had to do this when my car would sometimes go 1-2 months without being driven at a cold-weather base.
